  1. Change the motherboard because is socket FM1 and is not compatible with your Phenom with this : ASRock 970 EXTREME3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
    change power supply because you don't need 750w and change with this is same Corsair tx modular with 650w : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139031
    And for gaming the minimum solution is Radeon 6770 : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161387
  2. Yup as sosofm said
    Change your motherboard to an AM3+ socket
    Down ur powersupply to save some $$$
    spend extra $$$ on video card.
  3. Back off the water cooling and get an even better video card.
    Get a midtower case and you can approach a top of the line AMD video card.
  4. like delroymonjo said, cut the water cooling and stick with air.
    imo the 955 is better for gaming because the 965 take up a lot more power than it
    which will be better for overclocking.
  5. Thanks guys for the advice i had no idea the motherboard was not compatible appreciate it =]
